You’ll now see a list of all contacts that are blocked or muted. To block or mute someone, simply tap their name and choose one of two options: ‘Deliver messages to Inbox’ or ‘Don’t receive requests’.

The first option will deliver all messages from that person directly to your inbox, while the second option will stop them from being able to message you at all.

However, keep in mind that if you choose this option they will know you have blocked them as they won’t be able to find your profile or message you at all.

To do this go back into Settings -> Privacy -> Message Delivery and toggle off “Show Previews”.
